Travellers' Choice
Broughton House was built in 1810. It is set in 2 acres of south facing garden, and - until autumn 2020 - was a Bed and Breakfast. This is now closed, but the self-catering Garden Houses, and Ben's Yurt, which are situated in the grounds, are still open and ready to welcome guests. Two miles away is Cartmel, which has a Priory, horse racing 4 times a year, and plenty of places to eat, drink, and buy Sticky Toffee Pudding! I look forward to welcoming you soon.

Just spent a very relaxing long weekend here at broughton house. We stayed in the garden house which was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. Cate provided us with a few lovely welcome treats, fresh eggs from her chickens and some extremely tasty homemade goodies. The only niggle we had wasn't anything to do with Cate or the property, but with another guest who allowed their dog to run free not cleaning up after it,the dog kept scratching at our door trying to get in and then cocking its leg on the furniture on our veranda. This aside we would definitely stay again and happily recommend to anyone.

Hello - and first of all I have to apologise as, for some reason, I have only just seen this review. I'm glad that you enjoyed your stay, and can only apologise for the rogue hound that pestered you. I do tell people that their dogs have to be under control, and that they should clean up after it - I even provide the poo bags - but you can't win 'em all, and it's my gardeners I feel sorry for, when they mow the grass! Thank you again for the review and I hope you are well? with best wishes - Cate

My husband and I had such a fantastic stay at Broughton house. Cate was certainly the hostess with the mostess and she has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. We travelled with our two little dogs and they had a fun time too! The room was spacious and comfortable, and had wonderful tea and coffee choices, and of course the brownies and cookies were amazing! The best part of the stay has to be Cate's magnificent breakfast, we felt like royalty! There was so much to choose from, but that didn't affect the quality and it all tasted divine. She had made some sourdough bread too which was lovely dipped in my poached eggs. I could have had that breakfast every single morning! The location is a perfect spot to explore a lot of the lakes. We didn't have to time on this occasion but there is plenty of surrounding countryside to explore and cartmel itself isn't far. We would love to stay here again if possible.

Cate and Puffin made us feel so welcome. The house is beautiful and the room we stayed in (East room) was stunning. The mezzanine level was so unexpected. Cate has thought of everything to make your stay special, from the home baked cookies and brownies in the rooms to the little touches like shower caps, face wipes etc. I've never seen such an extensive range of teas and coffees to help yourself to!! The breakfast was delicious with locally sourced produce including eggs from the hens in the garden. This was our first visit but it definitely will not be the last. Perfect setting to explore the surrounding villages and lakes. Thank you so much Cate and Puffin

We had a lovely recent stay at Broughton House. Cate and Puffin the dog were so welcoming from the moment you arrive. The room was clean, lovely and light and had a beautiful view. Cate had also put up a travel cot for our 10 month old. There were lovely Brownies and shortbread in the room as well as all the types of tea you could wish for in the tea chest. The Cumbrian breakfast was one of the best fry ups that we have ever had!

We have just returned from a whistle stop night away, we went for the races at Cartmel and stayed at Broughton House and it was lovely, we where met by Cate who showed us round we had the East room and it was beautiful, nothing was to much trouble and such a relaxed atmosphere, the gardens are beautiful and you are only 10 mins away from the centre of the village, Cate very kindly organised a taxi for us and Trevor was there waiting to collect us to save having to take our car, I would recommend Broughton House to anyone wanting a relaxing stay, the breakfast was so good and the eggs were laid by their own hens and the icing on the cake for me was I got to meet Puffin her beautiful sheep dog (we are mad on dogs ) and bless she played ball with my husband, it was so nice we intend to go for 2 nights next year
